Does this include a trip to Mars as well? previous: NHibernate Mapping - <list/> next: NHibernate Mapping – <map/> I'll be the first to admit that I am not the best at Geography, but somehow I don't think that this is likely. Comments 06/02/2009 11:04 AM by Koen Why take a plane for that? 06/02/2009 11:08 AM by Ayende Rahien Because I am coming from New Jersey 06/02/2009 11:08 AM by configurator I agree with Koen... You can probably walk faster - or a two-hour drive... The reason for this long time is that the shortest line between two points is a straight line. Since they didn't want to fly northbound (probably there's a lot of traffic going there), they decided to fly in a straight line, directed west-north-west. It's still supposed to be the shortest line, isn't it? 06/02/2009 11:18 AM by Peter Morris I think it's pretty obvious. Although there is a flight due out of Seattle Sunday afternoon there isn't one due into Vancouver until Monday! 06/02/2009 12:12 PM by Dave Timezones are a difficult thing. Especially when you count timezones in the wrong way (+6, +7, +8 etc) in stead of (+8, +7, etc). So basically you fly around the world according to this airline. I had the same a few weeks ago when I arrived earlier than I left (local timezones), the flight was 45 minutes and the time wend back an hour, so according to my watch I arrived 15 minutes before I left ;-) 06/02/2009 12:42 PM by karl @Dave: Look again. He's staying within the same timezone (PST) and traveling maybe 120 miles, yet the trip will take 30 hours. Its as though the +1 day was mistakenly added. 06/02/2009 03:15 PM by Jeremy Wiebe Hmm... this must be the Washington to Vancouver flight that has a stopover in Melbourne, Australia! ;-) 06/02/2009 03:25 PM by Dmitry I worked for a Seattle based company and a few employees were commuting from Vancouver 2-3 times a week. I guess they were not taking this flight. 06/02/2009 05:12 PM by Peter Ritchie They must be including the time you'll spend in Customs! 06/02/2009 09:32 PM by Kev I guess you're taking the long-way round... 06/03/2009 06:29 AM by Dag The 30 hours is the best-case estimate for your luggage to reappear. The flight itself is only 30 mins of course. Comments have been closed on this topic.
